(aka confused by Signal Follower)
I am trying to control volume on a channel via signal follower.
I have a mix track that receives both a dry drum track and the drum run through FX chain.
I am trying to automate the control of the overall drum volume on the combined signal. Automatically pulling down the level if the combined signal spikes. Really struggling to get the signal follower working.
I have a sidechain-style effect, where signal gets pulled way down, but I just want something more subtle. I’ve been playing with the same idea on just the FX track as it is the main contributor to volume.
Potentially a much simpler way of doing this but I have no idea.
